David and Teryn Levy explain it wasn’t that hard picking the name for their “Blind Faith Ranch and Cabins,” established in 2005 as a sportsmen’s paradise on Bayou Pierre Cutoff Rd. just off La. Hwy. 1. The six comfortable cabins they’ve built there appeal to families as well as sportsmen of all ages from both near and far.

David and Teryn explain it was “blind faith” that reunited them after fate sent them along different paths. They had dated while college students at Northwestern in the 1970s, but each married someone else and went their separate ways. They managed to stay in touch, however. David, who was reared in Baton Rouge, relocated to Natchitoches where he works with Weyerhaeuser and moved onto property his great grandfather, Leopold Levy, had originally settled in the 1870s before passing it on to three sons and one daughter.

Teryn had moved to Texas with her husband, Roy, who passed away about two years ago.

“Blind faith seemed to bring us back together again,” David explains. The couple was married about 18 months ago in the 170 year-old Levy House. They now reside on 80 acres of land from the original Levy property not far from their new cabins. For a while, David just cut timber off the property where the cabins and the ranch are located, but he always felt there was far more potential for the ridge that overlooked Bayou Pierre, a tributary of Red River.

“The Red River system of locks and dams has turned north Louisiana into a virtual sportsman’s paradise, so I decided to build six cabins on the ridge with supporting facilities where folks could come and just relax and enjoy nature,” David explains. Given that some big fishing tournaments offering purses as high as $135,000 are also held in the area, it is no surprise that his location serves as an ideal base camp for anglers.
